I2S News #18 showcases two resources from the First Global Conference on Research Integration and Implementation: (1) the digital poster ‘Scenario Method for Integrating Knowledge’, which describes scenario analysis; and (2) the webcast ‘An Introduction to Systems Thinking: Integration and Implementation in the Face of Wicked Problems’ by Gerald Midgley.

The featured journal is the ‘International Journal of Decision Support System Technology’, and we also note a call for contributions for the ‘European Journal of Operational Research’ special issue on Behavioural Operational Research. The professional association featured in this newsletter is the ‘International Association for Conflict Management’.

The two featured conferences are: (1) 36th Annual Meeting of the Association for Interdisciplinary Studies: Interdisciplinary Public Problems, the Global Community, and Diversity; and (2) 2014 Action Learning and Action Research Association (ALARA) Australasian Conference.

We also highlight some of the discussion occurring on our LinkedIn Group: ‘Global Network for Research Integration and Implementation’.
